Did you wake up this morning with the opportunity to chase your dreams? Or excited thoughts of ‘what change will I create today?’ Gratefully, I did.
‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’ Eleanor Roosevelt
I can honestly say that I am doing the work, every day…choosing my thoughts, actively changing automatic negative thoughts (ANT’s) to beautiful positive seeds. I am working on the garden of my mind…everyday. You can to. It just takes small steps, thoughts & actions every day. But you have to do the work.
One of those actions is to surround yourself with people who inspire you (otherwise they will drain you). I’m happy to introduce you to one of own personal sources of inspiration…Kim Peirce, entrepreneur & creator of Babe Scrub. As much as you can control your own thoughts and actions, you are still a product of your environment, so make sure its a good one! (I create my environment with the dream chasers, the believers, the opportunity makers).
Charlie: You are the creator of Babe Scrub, an in demand, ‘must have’ product. What do you attribute this success to?
I’ve always been entrepreneurial and for a long time used this skill set to benefit the organisations I worked for! Two years ago I gave up my career in the corporate world to pursue my own entrepreneurial ventures and in this light, my success as an entrepreneur is founded on an inherent belief in myself. As Beyonce famously said “I don’t like to gamble, but if there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, it’s myself”.
This belief, served with a shitload of tenacity, and sprinkled with an openness to try anything is definitely the formula for my success!
Charlie: When did you decide to you wanted to be involved in the wellness industry?
My last job in the oil & gas and mining industry required travelling every month to all corners of the earth, leaving my children behind, and passing my husband like ships in the night. It was grueling. A weekend visit to Gwinganna Health Retreat in QLD was the catalyst for taking the step out of corporate and into the wellness and lifestyle industry.
Charlie: What inspired you to follow your passion?
Reading Tim Ferris’s 4Hr Work Week!
Charlie: How do you feel as an inspirational figure/mentor?
On some level, we all inspire others in different ways. Encouragement is sometimes all that is needed to inspire others to take action, and this is a beautiful gift to give from ourselves to those around us.
Charlie: Has there been any challenges along your journey?
I was a single mum when I took my first major career pivot deciding to go to university full time to get my undergraduate degree. Bringing two little babies under the age of 3 to university with me to my lectures and trying to keep them occupied under the desk while writing my essays was a challenge for sure, but it just made me more determined to succeed and I would not be where I am today without making that happen all those years ago.
Charlie: How do you maintain balance between your Career and personal health?
I begin every day with a walk early in the morning before I have to engage with anyone – including family! It helps me get my mind right and clear my thoughts for each day! It also helps me open my eyes!
‘Hope is the dream of the waking man.’ French Proverb
Charlie: What do you believe are the keys to success in business?
Determination. Manners. Determination. Educating yourself. Determination. Manners!
Charlie: What is your advice for anyone who has a dream?
‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ Harriet Tubman
Charlie: What can we look forward to next from you?
We have a new line coming out in the next couple of months as well as an extension to the Babescrub range. Yey!
Charlie: Top 3 healthy tips/advice?
#1 Move your body.
#2 Drink buckets of water but not just before, during or just after meals.
“When the mind goes beyond the thought of ‘the me,’ the experiencer, the observer, the thinker, then there is a possibility of a happiness that is incorruptible.” Jiddu Krishnamurti
I sincerly thank Kim for her time.
